The Basics:

One important extension of the Win-Win skill set is called Fix-It Talk. Fix-It Talk is the version of Collaborative Decision Making that enables couples to notice and then to fix places where their marriage has gotten a bit, well, broken. Fix-It Talk is great for repairing routines that no longer work and mending other places that are creating frustration.

In this unit we'll help you to:

  • Learn the Fix-It Talk routine.
  • Practice Fix-It Talk by looking at some practical how-do-we's around the house.
  • Summarize what you've learned and decide what to focus on next.
